Benihana Japanese restaurant is about to undergo extensive renovations.
The Japanese Restaurant, at 229 Peachtree Street, filed a permit with City of Atlanta for an interior remodel to its sushi bar, bar and lighting as well as to its storefront.
What Now Atlanta spoke with Jeannie Means, vice president of marketing at Benihana, about the project. She would not disclose any details about the renovations.
"Thank you for your request but we are not releasing details on any renovations plans at this time," Means told What Now Atlanta in an email. "I would be happy to work with you once we are ready to do so."
Renovations to the 20-year-old Downtown restaurant will cost an estimated $200,000.
